A Palestinian teen who tried to stab an Israeli woman in the West Bank was run over and shot to death. Her father, imam of the refugee camp where she grew up, says his daughter was 'responding to the occupation.'04:30 28.11.15 | 0 comments
I don't know about that Michael. Sources in Israel indicate that most Israelis assume is was Mossad. What is curious is the ideologues on both sides of these forum who have defined a debate based upon two concepts. Denial and, outrage. The deniers have lots of cute postulation as to how it couldn't be a Mossad hit and the 'outragers' have nothing but grasping at anything to bludgeon Israel with. There ARE real problems here for Israel. There seems to have been not been any thought given to cost vs benefit in this operation. There seems to have been a bit of arrogance, a belief that a bunch of camel drivers would never have the snap to use modern forensic capabilities. There also seems a belief that denial of the consequences will make everything right. This reminds me of the reckless arrogance that plunged America into two losing wars for ideological reasons in the last decade. Whack terrorists? Ok by me. But at what cost?
